" Son of a gun"
Clearly this run may be a bit over shadowed by the prior year, but this run does have lots of goodies.
This middle child of this run was a long show nearly 165 minutes, with the first set being almost 66 minutes.
Things get off to a reasonable good start with a "it gets better as it goes on" Help>>Slipknot!>Franklin's, with the final part of this suite being the best part of this opener.This night is clearly a Jerry show and he offers up plenty in the first set with strong versions of Jack-a Roe, B.E. Women and a great Deal.
Bobby is no slouch either as he offers up a happening BIODTL and a epic Desolation Row, for you 1,000 words in a song lovers, although he very strong in the mix and possibly out of tune at points. Jerry's accent playing is quite nice on this one too.
Set II is all old school, with only one new song SOTM which is outstanding. Bruce Hornsby who was on this tour, but did not play these shows I think due to a birth of a child. Or was it twins? This gives Vince some room to step out on his own and he is more than up for the task as he is balanced and complementary in the mix. He really throws down a great solo in Wang Dang Doodle and helps raise the energy in Samson.
The set II opener is hot! Samson> China> Rider is a keeper for sure. Vince's sound may be alittle too much on the transition to IKYR but overall he is quite strong and ready to play.
A poetic Looks Like Rain, as I recall the weather was quite raw and wintry. He's Gone is quite nice as well and a strong version is always welcomed.
Drumz has some very cool deep vibrate your room moments and showcases how Billy and Mickey made it sounds fresh many a night in the 1990's.
The post Space is classic '90's fare and ends wonderfully with a rollicking Good Lovin' and a tight U.S. Blues.
